Re: [SoundRowers_Board] Dec. 3rd Sound Rowers & Paddlers Annual meeting

Chiming in to answer a couple of Jeff's questions:

2.  Also, does Webscorer have a setting that permits the listing of full names in a 4x if not a dragon boat?

I looked into this a while back, and there is a deliberate hard limit on the number of characters in a name so the results will display on a single line. So we have to work within those limits. 

4.  Does the waiver in webscorer preclude written waivers?  

Several of us have asked this, but no lawyers have stepped in with a definitive answer. Would be nice to eliminate some paper...

Hi,
Thanks Tyler.  I have some general questions.

1.  For Budd Inlet, I noticed only mild interest by outrigger canoe paddlers relative to the potential number of oc1/oc2 paddlers, even though PNWORCA had no events on that weekend.  I suspect two likely issues: 
    A.  Race fatigue--too many races in too few weekends from mid-August thru mid October.  or
    B.  Sound Rowers' publicity efforts just didn't excite the outrigger community enough to drive down to Olympia.  Maybe A. overrode our efforts?

2.  Also, does Webscorer have a setting that permits the listing of full names in a 4x if not a dragon boat?

3.  How many rowing friendly PFD's do we still have? 

4.  Does the waiver in webscorer preclude written waivers? 

Thanks
Jeff W.

The race schedule dates are being submitted to Don Kiesling by the  race directors and will be included on the final draft of the agenda sent out about a week prior to the meeting.

The meeting this year will again be at the Lake Washington Rowing Club in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle 10 AM on Saturday December 3rd.  910 North Northlake Way, Seattle, WA 98103, Second floor.

I welcome your feedback and look forward to all being involved.

Re: Bellingham weather delay

Reivers Dustin
 

thx Steve.  It was one of Peter's crazier ideas (I think). 

 

If you haven't seen this thing: It's set up as a three-boat relay.  Teams of three boats are compiled just prior to 'race' start.  They are constructed so that teams supposedly balance.  That is beginners are paired with experts.  The event is in Lake Padden - normally a flat, even swimmer friendly venue.  It works for almost any boat, except maybe fast rowers, OC-6's, dragon boats ... there are some sharp turns and it is a short event. 

 

No fee, just bring a donation to the local food bank.  The results are that people, even spectators with no familiarity with the sport have a good time.  There is no way to predict top finishers.  And actually not many care about finish placing.  Except that each person gives it their all.

Thanks Reivers,

This is one non-Sound Rowers event that Sound Rowers should be heartily endorsing.

Nice work again, Peter Marcus.

    Please pass on to all racers!


    Thank you, Peter


Mercer wind report

Reivers Dustin
 

Not seeing much traffic on here, but shout out:  


Wind report looks gusty for tomorrow's race.  I'm seeing air from SSW 10mph gusting to 30.  This is building thoughout the morning so maybe a slog from start to get around South end of Mercer, then somewhat sheltered on East side and across North side.  From Mercer it looks like we need to creep across on North side of I-90 bridge.

Lake Samish Race photos now online

Michael Lampi
 

Steve Scoggins directed quite a great race yesterday up on Lake Samish.

A new record was placed yesterday as to the number of photos taken by me - over 1800!


No, I did not post all 1800 photos online as a bunch didn't make the cut. Still, I feel the remaining 1300 are too many to have in a single album so I split it into two pieces.


There first album is everything from pre-race through all of the race starts. This includes the Kids Race which has some special coverage.

http://soundrowers.org/racePhotos/2016/Lake%20Samish%20Part%201/index.html


The second album has everything I took after leaving the Kids Race through the awards ceremony.

http://soundrowers.org/racePhotos/2016/Lake%20Samish%20Part%202/index.html


As always, if you want the original photo or if you think there might be another photo that you might want that didn't get put on the web and there is a gap in the photo numbering where you might be in a shot before or after that sequence, just send me an e-mail.


Enjoy!

P.S. Due to a technical glitch the directory names might not be quite correct for a few minutes. If so, try again later.

P.P.S. I think I also set a new record for pedal boats on the extended course, breaking my old record by 20 seconds or so.

Due to the difficulties of revising the results per Steve's corrections  on that prior link, I had to make the corrections on a new slate which resulted in a new link:

Racers and Steve,

Please check webscorer for times, which I've posted after a little "duh" moments with the website uploading the results. Bainbridge 2016 | Race results | Webscorer

PS Traci, did I do that right?

Bainbridge start

Steve Bennett
 

Full Marathon Start/ at Fort Ward, 10:00 AM.

Registration, Race meeting, then Marathon Start.
Plan for shuttles to Fay Bainbridge for Half or 20k
Start at 12:00 AM.  Don't show up without attending the Race Meeting at Fort Ward.

Same as last year. 

Any confusion is on me.  Was trying to get back to the Fay Bainbridge start, but failed.

It is really difficult to find Fort Ward. I've been getting lost trying for 18 years. I recommend you copy the directions from the website, or generate your own with Google Maps.  Better yet, find them below.

Re: Photographer needed for Mercer Island Race

Steve Bennett
 

Hi Mike, 
Put me on the long list for Guano.  If I go, I will plan to shoot instead of race. We bladed guys just can't do it all.

I might also have a lead on some Shaw photos.  Will work at it.

Photographer needed for Guano Rocks race

Michael Lampi
 

Unfortunately, due to work activity I won't be able to attend the Guano Rocks Race this year.

So, if someone going to the Guano Rocks race is willing and able to take photos I can later on put those photos on the web.


The Sound Rowers camera and water-resistant bag are available.


Thanks!

Looking for ride to the Elk River Challenge

Jon Harwood
 

Chris May is a paddler looking for a ride from the Seattle area to the Elk River Challenge - just one way - he will pay the gas. I will vouch for him; I know he's been to at least a few races. He posted on the Soundrowers Facebook page. You can contact him that way. Thanks! (anything I can do to get people here) By the way South Sound Area Kayakers are having a "play day" at Grayland Beach on Sunday, just down the road. --Jon

Pardon my most unintended omission in my last email. HUGE thanks to the ever most generous Heikkilas -- who are hosting the Tuna BarB que.  I was certainly thinking of them in my thanks, but typing faster than sluggish brain.  

Thank you Vern & Janet!!!
